Why doesn't Nike+ work with the 1st Gen Ipod touch with 2.1 software?

Why doesn't Nike+ work with the 1st Gen Ipod Touch with 2.1 software?

The second gen iPod Touch has firmware version 2.1.1(5F138) whereas the 1st Gen only allows 2.1 (5F137). Don't know if that has anything to do with it, but it's likely.
Why doesn't Apple allow those with the Nike+iPod sports kit to use their external sensor on the 1st Gen iPod Touch?!?! I can't see why the sensor would be incompatible with the right firmware upgrade!!

  • Why isn't the new iOS4 update compatible with the 1st generation iPod touch

    It makes me extremely angry that i have wanted what the new update contains ever since i got my ipod and now I can't have it because whoever made the update didn't make it compatible with the 1st generation iPod touch. Ig someone could give me a good reason as to why this happened that would be much appreciated.

    Doesn't have the needed hardware in particular not enough RAM.

  • What Happened with the 1st Gen iPod Nano Settlement

    Whatever happened with the 1st generation iPod Nano settlement? Was it a scam? I signed up online a long time ago but never heard back.
    Sorry if this is the wrong forum for this question. But, I haven't been able to get an answer anywhere else.
    Thanks!

    I didn't sign up for it, but my understanding was it had not yet been finalized.

  • 1st gen iPod Touch with iOS 3.1.3 - update via wi-fi?

    That's basically it.  I found my old 1st gen iPod Touch and wanted to update the iOS, but I am away from my computer with iTunes. 
    I do have wi-fi though.
    I tried via Settings->General->Update.  But it doesn't have an update option in settings.
    Anyone? 

    A 1G iPod Touch can not be updated past iOS 3.1.3.  Only the 3G and 4G iPod touch models can run iOS 5 or later, which added in the ability to update via the Settings app.

  • Can i use nike+ipod (sensor kit or not) with my 1st gen ipod touch?

    okay. so i just bought an ipod touch about a month ago because i had an ipod classic but wanted to use nike+. Well i was cruisin the apple website looking to buy nike+ and realized that it says that it only works with 2nd generation touchs. I was about to bust a nut. I did not just spend 250 dollars on a touch and now i cant even use nike+
    I bought the 2.2 software upgrade a bit before that, and im wondering if with this upgrade i can use nike+? I understand that the 2nd gen touch has a built in thingy majigger, but if i bought the sports kit (both the sensor fo rhte ipod nad the reciever for the shoe) can i still use it?
    thanks in advance.

    Nope... no external volume controls.
    So now I have to return a Christmas gift -- one I was really looking forward to using! Thanks a lot, Apple.
    And here I thought I was buying a reasonably up-to-date product six months ago, when I got my Touch.
    Is there some really compelling reason why the plug-in receiver will work with Nanos of all kinds... but not Touchs?

  • HT1665 would any of the accessories form the 4 gen iPod touch be compatible with the 5 gen iPod touch

    just wondering because im am going to purchase the ipod touch 5 gen but have yet to see a release of any kind of accessories besides the 30 pin connector cord which has already been out. how would you protect your new ipod from drops or anything that could accure if it's not released with any new accessories ?

    Have you tried the standard reset?
    Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the
    Home button for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

  • ANY radio app for 1st gen iPod touch?? Even with Wifi!?

    Firstly, I know the 1st gen ipod touch does not have a radio receiver..this is not my problem.
    I've been looking for an app that I can listen to the radio on..even through wifi...but am not finding any that will work with the 1st gen. For example, I download TuneIn radio which I have on my itunes, blackberry, and tablet...but it is only compatible with newer generations of the ipod touch. I am on version 3.1.3 which I believe is the most up-to-date.
    In short, I'm absolutely fine to use wifi to listen to the radio, but simply can't find an app (ideally a free one) that will even let me sync the app from my itunes to the ipod.
    Suggestions would be very welcome!

    Try my web app. I have over 100 stations of all genres. Just enter the following URL in Safari and tap on the orange music icon on top right. Also, you can add a Home screen app icon for easy future access.

  • Please help; What makes the 2nd Gen iPod Touch better then the 1st Gen?

    I am thinking about buying an 8gb iPod Touch, should i save some dough and buy the 1st gen iPod Touch or pay a bit more and buy the 2nd gen?
    Also, what makes the 2nd gen iPod Touch better then the 1st gen, what has been improved, changed, etc...?
    Thanks in advance.

    I had the 1st gen touch since it first came out and just got the 2nd gen touch last month. I'll list a few things I like about the 2nd gen touch.
    1. internal speaker. makes a huge difference in my opinion.
    2. new design. alot nicer to hold in your hand than the 1st gen.
    3. seems faster overall than the 1st gen touch.
    4.display no longer has blue tint. now has more of a yellow tint. makes pics and movies look a little better.
    If you can afford the 2nd gen touch I would highly recommend it.

  • Getting App off 1st Gen iPod touch to use on iPhone

    I have a 1st gen ipod touch with an app that is no longer available in the app store (the original EA SimCity).  I want to save it to my pc so i can put it on my iphone, but when I backup or sync my ipod touch, it doesn't backup the game. Any way I can get the game off the ipod onto my pc or into itunes?   I want to play the game i paid 5 bucks for, but EA cleverly obsoleted the game and re-released it under the same title with one tweak.

    Transfer iTunes purchases to the computer by:
    iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iOS device or iPod to a computerIt is an all or no transfer. Then sync the app to the iPhone.
    If you also want the game status restored:
    - How to transfer game saves between iOS devices, without iTunes, and without jailbreaking | TUAW - The Unofficial Apple Weblog
    - Or backup the iPod to iTunes and restore the iPhone from that backup. All the apps have to be in the iTunes library since the backup does not included synced media like apps and music.

  • Why doesn't my computer download the songs from my iphone with clouds next to them?

    Why doesn't my computer download the songs from my iphone with clouds next to them?

    You can copy iTunes purchased songs over to your computer's iTunes library via File > Devices > Transfer Purchases, or have you tried going to the Purchased link under Quick Links on the right-hand side of the iTunes store homepage on your computer's iTunes and seeing if you can redownload them on your computer ?

  • Will 1st gen ipod touch still work with new itunes library on new computer (transfer didn't work from old computer)

    Ok, so I have a new computer and wanted to transfer my itunes library from my old computer. I could not get the files to transfer. I downloaded the newest version of itunes and see that I can download my previously purchased music to the new computer. I have mp3's that I can add in on my own so I don't have a problem starting over in itunes.
    My question is what happens when I plug in my 1st gen ipod touch and try to sync??? Will it erase what is on my ipod or will I be able to move the stuff from my ipod into my new itunes library?? Any info would be great...I'm happy with how my ipod is set up so I really don't want to mess with a good thing. Also, will I need to update and of my software on my ipod since it's 1st generation??
    Thanks for the help!!

    You can only sync to one iTunes library/computer. If you do sync the iPod is erases and its contents replaced with what is in the iTunes library of the second computer.
    To avoid that see:
    Syncing to a "New" Computer or replacing a "crashed" Hard Drive: Apple Support Communities
    Yes, the 1G works with the latest iTunes.
    To transfer iTunes purchases:
    iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iOS device or iPod to a computer
    In iTunes 11 use Control+B to show the Menu bar then go to iTunes>File>Devices>Transfer Purchases

  • 1st Gen iPod touch Keeps Having to Be Re-Registered with iTunes

    My 1st Gen. iPod touch works very well, with one exception. Every few weeks I'll turn it on and I'll get the picture of the cable and the iTunes icon - which is what you get the first time you use your iPod touch and means it needs to be registered with iTunes. This will happen both if I plug it in to my charger and when I just simply turn it on with the power button. I'll then take the touch to my computer and use my syn cable and plug it in. When the iTunes window comes up, on the left column it shows my touch, but the name I'd given it has gone back to the default name. I'll rename it again, but again within a week or two the same thing happens again. I'm stumped. I'm using an iMac running Leopard 10.5.6 and a white MacBook, also with 10.5.6. All my software on the touch, MacBook and iMac are up to date. I have very few apps on my touch and lots of room left on it to store stuff. Can anyone help? Thanks.

    Hi Brenda,
    That screen, with the iTunes icon and the USB cable, means the iPod is in recovery mode.
    This article: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808 provides more information about the mode and how-to use it to restore your iPhone or iPod touch.
    Are you using any 3rd-party accessories with the iPod touch?
    Does the accessory have the Made for iPod logo?
    Try restoring the iPod again, setting it up as a new iPod, and testing it without any 3rd-party accessories.
    If the issue persists, the iPod may need hardware repair. Just make a reservation to have a Genius take a look at it or call AppleCare.

  • Ios 3.1.1 will not download for the 1st generation ipod touch

    Why won't ios 3.1.1 download for the 1st generation ipod touch?  It will start and then a second later stop.

    Does it happen with the apps that came with the iPod?
    Does it happen with all apps you have downloaded/installed?
    Have you ried deleting the apps and redownload/install the apps?  You will not be charged again if you are signed into the same iTunes account that originally purchased the apps.
    Next would be to restore from backup
    Last would be to restore to factory defaults/new iPod.

  • How do you get apps for the 1st generation iPod touch

    How do I get apps for the 1st generation iPod touch?

    By updating the iOS on the iPOd.  The 1G can go as high as 3.1.3.  That works with a lot of apps.  But some apps require a higher iOS and/or newer iPod.
